Freeman Missed Bucs’ Team PhotoSeptember 11th, 2013
In the wacky world of the NFL, where everything’s a story, Joe brings you the story of Josh Freeman missing the Bucs’ official team photo session earlier this month.
Yes, it happened. You might have read about it in the comments section on this site days ago.
Joe has confirmed that Freeman was a no-show for the annual photo ritual and Freeman was not excused by the Buccaneers.
Joe talked to various Buccaneers today at practice about it and no player told Joe it was a big deal. “Stuff happens,” was the common response.
Speculators, of course, will say this could be a reason Freeman was not voted a team captain. But Joe doesn’t buy it. Freeman himself said on his radio show last night that he voted for Vincent Jackson and Davin Joseph, the eventual offensive captains, two worthy veteran leaders.
Does Joe think this is a big deal? No. However, when you add other very minor screwups in Freeman’s career, it is a happening worth noting.
